Riot Headline 10 Exciting Books to Read this Summer

Beautiful Bookish Stationary (The Best of Book Riot)

Wallace Yovetich

Staff Writer

Wallace Yovetich grew up in a home where reading was preferred to TV, playing outside was actually fun, and she was thrilled when her older brothers weren’t home so she could have a turn on the Atari. Now-a-days she watches a bit more TV, and considers sitting on the porch swing (with her laptop) “playing outside”. She still thinks reading is preferable to most things, though she’d really like to find out where her mom put that old Atari (Frogger addicts die hard). She runs a series of Read-a-Longs throughout the year (as well as posting fun bookish tidbits throughout the week) on her blog, Unputdownables. After teaching for seven years, Wallace is now an aspiring writer.

Much of the good ship Book Riot is off at Book Expo America this week, so we’re running some of our best stuff from the first half of 2013. We’ll be back with reports from BEA next week and our usual array of new book-nerdery.

Do your New Year’s Resolutions ever include keeping in better touch with friends and family? Do you ever promise yourself that you’ll actually sit down and write a letter rather than an e-mail? What about those times you need to send a Thank You Note but find you need to go to the store and buy a whole pack of them just to write that one? Wouldn’t it be nicer if you had some fun stationery to help keep those resolutions, goals, and last-minute errands in check?

You can find each of the following (and more) on Society 6. (The name of each prticular card is included above the corresponding picture.) Which is your favorite?
